Movie Review: Odd Thomas
This movie was nothing like I expected. I should have known that the movie was based on a book by Dean Koontz. Needless to say, I passed this one over several times but it kept showing up on my list. In netflix it was given a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
I loved the character development and the characters themselves. Yelchin does a great job with the dramatic performance. And who doesn't love Addison Timlin, who play's odd's girlfriend. She is adorable, quirky and a great side kick who truly loves Odd.
Many will say the acting was too scripted or too fake, but for that reason, I liked it. The flow moved along nicely and the pace kept my attention. It is a little graphic so parents if your gonna show your kids, there is some violence, but no nudity (although I personally feel nudity would be better than violence but that is just my preference).
The ending may or may not come as a shocker to you. I wiped away (quite) a few tears. You will definitely see aspects of the director, Stephen Sommers, who brought you "The Mummy". In all it was a good movie that kept me going for its brief duration. Its definitely worth a watch on Netflix.
It can be a good date night movie or a solo. Take your pick and enjoy!
Until next time...
